The Party’s Over
Here in the Golden Shire it’s all over, the snow has all but gone.
Somehow it’s a shame . . .
Having just returned from an evening post-prandial walk I’m left with the feeling that everything looks a but sad.
It looks like a party the day after, all the excitement has gone and only the mess is left, like a faded movie star it’s best viewed in sympathetic light.
It feels like a great let-down in many ways, I know Many People Hate the Snow but, selfishly, for me it provides something of a change and a chance to see old scenes in a new guise and some much needed photographic opportunities.
To that end I took this photograph recently on a glorious day in-between snow showers . . .
I suppose it’s all back to normal now, cold and miserable days without the excitement of the snow, dark mornings and dark afternoons.
It really does feel a bit dull, a let-down almost, the post holiday blues, Monday morning, the day after your birthday . . .
I’m sure most people are pleased to see the back of the snow but for me it all looks a little dull and disappointing.
I’m hoping for some inspiration in these gloomy days before spring, something to point a camera at and some interesting stuff to bring to the site.
